March “Maid”ness

Pass along this Simple.Home.Blessing.

I have been trying my best to get my house back in order over the last month or so.  It takes so long for me to get back into routines and get back to “normal” after a baby arrives.  As part of getting back on track is deep cleaning.

I LOVE a clean, well organized home and struggle when there is clutter and chaos.  I am constantly striving to keep the house clean and come up with systems that work for me.  I am discovering the art of making and keeping a home is a lifelong pursuit.  Just as I think I have one thing figured out, a wrench is thrown in the works and I have to start over again on creating systems and routines.

Thus, I have resolved to get something done about creating the new system for this stage of life we are in, now: married with 2 kids.  I don’t know how long we will be in this particular stage of life; but my goal is to come up with household solutions to keep me sane for the time being.

Enter my concept for a series in the month of March for this blog: March “Maid”ness.  I will be doing research on cleaning (according to the pros), exploring solutions to common household problems and generally putting in to practice the things that work for our home.

And I would love for you to join me!

Every weekday from March 4th to March 29th, I will be posting something to do with cleaning, organization, and home keeping along with a challenge for the day.  I hope this encourages us to get our houses in order and discover the systems that work in our homes.  Please stop by in the morning to get the latest challenge and then leave a comment or a link to your blog telling us how you did.

I can’t wait to get started!  Who’s with me?

    I’m in with you on the home organizing and decluttering! I started last month going through the closets and sending things on to salvation army! Packed up 15 boxes over the span of a couple weeks and and sent them off last week and it is an amazing difference. We are living in a small trailer right now so there isn’t much storage space… what isn’t used or worn has to go! Having a toddler around who just wants to innocently dig through boxes and pull everything out again makes it a lot more difficult than it used to be!

      I know what you mean about the toddler way of preventing cleanliness. There is nothing more appealing, it seems, to a toddler than a box (empty or full). Who needs toys. I am glad you are in for the March Maidness thing. I am looking forward to feeling a heavy weight lifted off my shoulders by month’s end!
